Valve has officially confirmed from GDC 2015 that its official Steam Machines will be available this coming November. Its presser states that the living room PCs will be available “at the same price point as game consoles.”
In collaboration with Alienware and Falcon Northwest, the company is looking to bring the best gaming experience to your living room, backed by that enormous Steam backlog you’re too ashamed to look at anymore.
Steam Machines will start at the same price point as game consoles, with higher performance. Customers interested in the best possible gaming experience can choose whichever components meet their needs.
Epic Games is also on the scene to show off its latest iteration of Unreal Tournament using the Steam Machines and a 4K gaming monitor.”We love this platform,” said Tim Sweeney, Founder of Epic Games.
“Whether you’re running incredibly detailed scenes at 4K or running 1080p at 120 FPS for an intense shooter experience, this brings world-class gaming and graphics to televisions with an open platform true to Valve’s PC gaming roots.”
Along with the partnership from Alienware and Falcon Northwest, Valve has also brought “a dozen other partners” to GDC 2015 to show off other collaborative PCs that will be available in November. The oft-discussed Steam Controller will also be available this November at a price of 49.99.
With the confirmed release window of Steam Machines, not to mention the long overdue announcement of Source 2, it seems as if Valve is stealing the show at GDC 2015.
